AK Antony’s son quits Congress after slamming BBC series on Modi: ‘…chamchas’


Congress leader Anil K Antony, son of former Union minister AK Antony, resigned from the Congress a day after he slammed the BBC documentary on PM Modi — India: The Modi Question. The Congress leader said he was facing “intolerant calls” to retract his tweet to which he did not give in. Instead, he gave his resignation letter on Wednesday.

“Considering the events from yesterday, I believe it would be appropriate for me to leave all my roles in the Congress,” Anil wrote in his resignation letter relinquishing his duty both as the convener of the KPCC digital media and also the national co-ordinator of the Congress social media and digital communication cell.
